For a second I thought Hughes was going to live. It would be interesting if he lived but whatever.

It's pretty sad.

I did not see that coming! They infiltrated the state alchemists and killed Hughes! What an episode!

I cried at the funeral scene, it was so sad what his daughter kept saying! ;_______;

Man, having watched this nearly ten years ago, then finished Brotherhood a few weeks ago, I thought I've seen it all.

How wrong I was, to underestimate the power of the original scene. His last wave to Edward broke my heart to pieces :'(

God damnit. I was whining about how different his death was, but it still hurts no matter how much they changed it.
I feel like it hurts more than in the manga simply because you hear the crying and poor Alicia crying about why they were burying him and how they can't cause he has a lot of work to do and cant' wake up to do it if they buried him. Also, I feel like it hurts more cause he got shot in the arm which meant instead of dying right away like he did in the manga, he sat there, bleeding to death, probably thinking about his wife and child. ;n;
Also, what the hell, he was waving bye to Ed and them, at least it means that he's leaving and going to heaven so I guess that's one good thing right?? ;u;

I got into this series after seeing a gif of what I now know to be Mustang crying and saying "It's starting to rain now isn't it." I had to know what that gif was from because the line was beautiful and because I wanted to start an emotional anime. I finally got to see the context it was in. I was just thinking in the previous episode that Hughes was probably my favorite character. This series has been amazing so far. I cried a bit, I'll miss him. Onto the favorite anime characters list you go, Hughes.

The one thing FMA has over brotherhood - Hughes' death was much more emotional given that we actually got a chance to know him his time. I teared up, I'll admit.

Nooo! Hughes was one of my favorites! And poor Elicia... Can you imagine how much Ed is going to flip when he finds out?? Though that was kind of cool how Hughes's "ghost" waved goodbye to him.

So freaking sad! -- 5/5

Very sad episode, but the fact remains his other merits, which is a good script a narrative that creates even more empathy for the characters and the countless details that are in addition to others already received. The plot is always more interesting, soundtrack excellent as always, I'll go to see the next episode.

Damn 3v1 bullshit. I can only imagine how much worse this would have been if I actually saw this as it came out and I had to wait a while before the next season.

Would've been affected more if I hadn't known Hughes dies because of how infamous his death is in this series.


Popularity Is such a double-edged sword.

He was such a likable character, he'll be missed.

Shame Hughes died ..., I feel so sorry for his wife and Elicia, especially when he had that touching moment before reading into the war and Douglas.
I already thought it was weird the Lieuitenant would have known where Hughes was, even though Hughes catched on to the mole thing, it wasnt enough :/

I wonder if this Sloth person also has a similar skill to Envy.

What I like about this version of Hughes' death over Brotherhood is the scene on the train when Ed sees the apparition of Hughes' spirit waving farewell. Something about that made my heart weep. Hughes was very much a goofy father figure to Ed; not exactly a father, but definitely an older male support figure. The only one Ed had. And Hughes' death is the major turning point in this series. It's as if Hughes is waving to say, "Have a safe trip, Ed. You'll do great in life. I have faith in you." It's something Hughes would definitely say if he had a final moment with Ed. Hughes was a great man, and a great father to his daughter, a great husband to his wife, and a great fatherly support figure to Ed. This scene definitely exemplified that, I feel.

Whether or not that's the reason I love that scene so much, I'm not sure. Something about it feels so spiritual and beautiful, though, and I definitely do think that's part of it. Scenes like this are what Brotherhood lacked, and is what makes 2003 feel much more sophisticated and somber. I love 2003 for this reason.
Life has meaning.
Until real evidence comes out against him, I Stand with Vic.

It would have been nice if they gave him a bit more dignity before killing him off. He had no plan, no backup and didn't tell anyone what he was doing as he tries to face off against a threat that has shown to be incredibly powerful. Disappointing to see a good character die like that. Hopefully it doesn't take too long for the information Hughes had on the homunculi to be given to the other characters so the story can move on.

I believe he didn't want anyone else involved or to put anyone else in danger. That's why he fired his secretary and strong-arm kept his mouth shut

When Hughes was saying to his daughter that he has a lot of work to do, I got scared for his family. Then when he was making the phone call and a picture fell out of his pocket, I was pretty sure they were going to kill his daughter. I was desperately hoping he's only injured :( This death really got me :( And I thought this was going to be another family/friends/nakama anime where everyone survives and lives happily..... I got slapped in the face :(

I'd say besides the Nina episode, this is the most iconic.
I remember being pretty blindsided about this the first time I saw it.

Best episode up until now. They handled his death so much better here, my God. New information about the homunculi is revealed.
